Many private hospital workers who initially expressed reservation on receiving Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine have agreed to be vaccinated after the rollout in public hospitals, Dr. Jose Rene De Grano, president of the Private Hospitals Association of the Philippines Inc, said Friday.
At least 70 percent of employees in private hospitals earlier agreed to be vaccinated against the disease.
“No’ng bigla pong sabihin na Sinovac, medyo bumaba. Pero pagkatapos po ng rollout sa PGH (Philippine General Hospital), sa mga different government hospital sa Metro Manila, medyo dumami na rin po ulit ang pumapayag. Sinasabi nila, kung ano man ang ibigay na bakuna ay tatanggapin na rin namin,” de Grano said in an interview in Teleradyo.
